I have just been informed that the 'smeargate' emails which were leaked from No10, when Gordon Brown was Prime Minister, and involved communication between Derek Draper and McBride re a plot to smear George Osborne, David Cameron one other MP and myself were obtained by News International via hacking into Damian McBrides computer.
Damian McBride confessed and resigned. Gordon Brown apologised in Parliament.
